“We tried for a while to get pregnant. And this is something we’ve wanted for a very long time in our relationship. So I knew that [Val] would be awesome and excited.”

She explained further, “I’ve always been pretty toned, pretty in shape, because of dance. And so, while my body has constantly been changing, it’s been a lot and confusing at times. But he has made me feel so special and so beautiful.”

The star had to teach herself to slow down by affirming to herself that she was not lazy but was serving a purpose at that moment.
